Fun and Classy Ways to Celebrate a Woman’s 40th Birthday
We’ve all heard it said, that 40 is the new thirty. Well, if that’s so, then 50 is the new 40 and nothing is more empowering for women than that. Women no longer have to feel that 50 is the invitation for a mid-life crisis. They can now recognize it as a time to step into an opportunity to live more powerfully, confidently and in the now.
The strong and talented birthday woman in your life deserves a celebration worthy of her honor, so here are some fun and classy ways to celebrate a woman’s 40th birthday:
Who to invite. This just might be the most important tip. Make sure that the people you are inviting are people that will motivate and inspire her. The last thing she (or anyone for that matter) needs is to be surrounded by complainers that only see aging as a depressing path to dying. Invite people that are excited to live their lives, have goals, and are feel inspired!
Choose a theme. You don’t need a theme but it sure makes it fun and brings out the playfulness in everyone. You can go fun and silly or go classy and elegant. Fill the night with your favorite movies, food and music. Stay in and dance or go out and strut your evening look! But remember to take pictures because it's sure to be memorable.
Capture it well. Put someone in charge of photography with a goal in mind. Tell the photographer what moments you want to make sure our captured, like laughter, kisses, bonding, emotions or a carefree spirit. Then collect the photos together and privately present it later as a belated final gift. She will cry, so have tissues.
The Bucket List. Make a list of 10 things you want to do in the next year and then 10 major things you want to accomplish in the next TEN years. From simple things like calling an old friend to travel or adventure! These should all be things that you've either forgotten to take the time to do or just never found the time or the courage to take that big leap. This is a great table discussion and way to keep the whole group talking, sharing stories and comparing goals. Who knows? Maybe an exciting adventure will be planned!
